Barn finds seem to pop up a lot these days, but it's still rare to see one like this. A total of 81 cars were just discovered in a massive barn in rural France, most of them from the 1960s and 1970s. There are some pretty heavy hitters, including a 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, and a 1964 Series I Jaguar E-Type coupe. The best part? All of the cars .

Despite its sorry state, that Miura is expected to bring in the most money at Intrencheres's auction, which takes place on Sunday, January 20th, 2019. It shows just 77,886 kilometers (48,396 miles) on the odometer, and still has its original V12 engine. It's estimated to fetch between $456,000 and $684,000. The Jaguar, which is in equally neglected-but-solid condition, is estimated to go for ten times less money.

Among the list of cars up for grabs is a super-rare Pre-A Porsche 356 coupe, a C3-generation 1981 Chevy Corvette, a couple of Lincoln Continentals, a handful of Lancia Flaminias, and even a 1930s Citroen van. There's also a smattering of Audis, Volkswagens, Peugeots, Oldsmobiles, Alfa Romeos, Renaults, Chryslers and Cadillacs. It's a truly diverse collection.

In addition to all of the cars, the auction includes around 100 loose items including rare engines, transmissions and wheels.
